New Zealand : From Our Land To Your Table

Assalamualaikum and hello lovelies! :)

2 weeks ago I attended a cooking demonstration with Nadia Lim, New Zealand Masterchef winner alongside my blogger friends. It was such a fun and intimate event that we can really interact with Nadia while she is cooking. Nadia Lim was here in the conjunction of the New Zealand Week in Malaysia. She cooked awesome food using New Zealand's best ingredients and I will talk you through the recipe if you are interested to try them out!  ^_^  The cooking demonstration is held in Berjaya University College of Hospitality.

Okay, lets get into the cooking demonstration, shall we? :)

Nadia Lim's book, Good Food Cook Book emphasizes on easy, healthy and delicious recipes. Just a little fact, Nadia's father is a Malaysian Chinese and her mother is a Kiwi. So yeah, that makes her a Malaysian. :) I always feel proud and happy whenever I met someone who is successful and a Malaysian too! :D  Nadia Lim has a new venture called 'My Food Bag' which is a home delivery business that provides healthy ingredients (groceries) for her customers to promote healthy eating.
